With Joyce Giraud and Carlton Gebbia gone, there are a few vacant spots heading into Season 5 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Who will join Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle Richards, Brandi Glanville, Yolanda Foster, and Kim Richards? There have been many rumors going around that Three’s Company star Suzanne Somers would be joining the cast — but is she?


“Andy feels like she would be perfect for the show,” a source told Life & Style, via RadarOnline.com. “She is so wacky, funny, and eccentric that she would be great! They’d be jealous of her, of course. Suzanne isn’t mean, so she wouldn’t be backstabbing the ladies.”

That sounds like fun, but is it true? Well, if you ask E! News, the answer is no. The site reports that multiple sources confirmed to them that Suzanne will not be joining the cast and that, while she may be friends with many of the ladies, at most we’d see her filming a scene or two with them. In fact, Suzanne’s rep said: “We do not have any comment, since no one has contacted Suzanne about these talks.”

Filming for Season 5 has already begun — since all the returning women have finally signed their contracts — but so far none of the empty spots have been filled, although Bravo is actively seeking replacements.
